so, my friend tiff had to take a character strengths quiz for one of her classes.
basically you answer a whole plethora of questions and then it tells you, out of 24 traits, what your strengths and weaknesses are.
my top 5:
1. forgiveness & mercy
3. capacity to love and be loved
4. kindness and generosity
5. appreciation of beauty
oh, and humility was dead last.
except, the same thing happened to tiff and i am pretty dead certain that is untrue about her, so that makes me feel better.
it also told another friend that "social intelligence" was her weakest trait.
[we think the test might be prone to some dirty lies, but it is fun nonetheless]
want to analyze yourself?
...it's the VIA Survey of Character Strengths, under Engagement Questionnaires
[yes, you have to register w/ your email address but i haven't been spammed or anything yet so i wouldn't be too concerned about that.]
some of the questions are quite hokey and def gave me the giggles, e.g. "i'd rather die than be phony," and "my friends tell me that i know how to keep things real."
i don't know guys...do i know how to keep things real?
[look at me, keeping it real, being a pirate. such a humble pirate, you might say.]
